WIP Wednesday: Grannies Galore

Hello and happy Wednesday!

My Christmas quilt finish has really motivated me to work on some old works-in-progress. This week I managed to finish two more blocks for my scrappy granny square quilt, bringing the total block count up to 7! Woohoo - only two more to go!

And I finished the first block of my Vintage quilt from Simply Retro. Guess I wasn't really thinking that I was already in the middle of one granny square quilt when I decided to start this one... oh well! 

First block out of Kona Pool
I'm having a few doubts about this quilt already and I've barely started out. First off, this is one HUGE block! It finishes at 20" square, which I know is big, but it looks so much bigger actually sewn up. I'm also questioning my plan to make it out of all solids. I think I'll like it - it's just a little different for me!

What have you been working on this week? Head on over to Freshly Pieced to see some more works-in-progress!


  1. I think it is fun to work on such large scale blocks on occasion. I think using all solids will be beautiful, too. :)

  2. I think you should challenge yourself with the large scale blocks and solids. It looks great...but then so do the smaller ones.

  3. Go for the solids! It will look fantastic!

  4. Stick with it, you may be surprised! I can't wait to see how it turns out.

  5. Thanks, everyone! I'll stick with it... I'm curious now how it will turn out. And, the blocks are really fun to sew.
